Only complaint, I called 3 times before we got there for parking recommendations and nobody answered the phone all 3 times (calls were spaced out about every 15 minutes until we got there)

A very professional and charmer server. The meal was cooked perfectly, of course. Definitely recommend the porterhouse for two!

My partner and I went to celebrate our anniversary. The food was good, my main entree could have been a bit better, it overall, it was a good meal. The service was very poor. Our server didn’t check on us much, and we waited a long time for everything. She was nice, but she did not make the experience enjoyable at all.

Ordered a medium rare steak and it came out raw, it took over 40 minutes to refire and it was shoe leather. By then the sides were cold. Management was condescending when I was pointing out the issue. Very disappointing experience. There are plenty of better quality and service steakhouses in the area, I would encourage you to try over this one.

Unfortunately extremely sub par all around for Ruth’s Chris. Server was not attentive-asked for every refill, had to ask 3/4 times for pretty much everything…food came out maybe 10 degrees above room temperature. Unable to recommend this RC at this time.

Terrible service don’t waste your money here. 3 weeks ago we came to celebrate and had an awful experience with the new manager. Yesterday we received terrible service. The server was so slow another table walked out on him. It took him forever to come take our order then he got it wrong. Instead of owning his mistake he claimed the kitchen mixed up the side of mashed potato’s we ordered for a chicken entree. Once we got the mashed potato’s they were super runny and gross. I wanted to order dessert but it took the server a long time to bring me a dessert menu and by the time he finally came back I decided to not order any because it wasn’t worth the wait. Highly recommend going somewhere else. Jeff Ruby’s has never treated us like this and consistently offers top notch service and delicious steaks.

Our table service was VERY, VERY slow, but the food made up for it to a certain degree.

I'm not sure if the poor service was a product of recent service worker shortages, but suffice it to say, for a $200 meal (with a couple drinks), our table service could have been far better.

Food was delicious, & our steaks (filets) were cooked absolutely perfectly (medium). Kitchen work was magnificent.

We had a reservation and were seated right away. The service was outstanding. Food was great as well. We were seated in a small room with three other tables. It was a bit loud in there.

One of our favorites! Always consistently great food and usually great service. Unfortunately, this visit was not what we've come to expect from Ruth's Chris. The gentleman that welcomed us and sat us was extremely nice and helpful. He actually cleared dishes on his way back from seating other guest. Our waiter seemed distracted, was inattentive and just seemed uninterested. We will be back and hope this was an isolated occurrence.

We were celebrating our anniversary. Julie was our server and she was fabulous. Professional & personable. She didn’t rush us. Right timing for cocktails/food etc. the food was excellent. Cocktails prepared very well.
We were seated just off from the bar. Next time we will call to make our reservation (we used open table) to request the side dining room (more intimate) or perhaps upstairs. The noise/little more casual atmosphere of the bar area was not what we were looking for.
Overall, super experience. We will be back.

We celebrated my friends birthday here. For the first time I was really disappointed with the food. It took over an hour to get our food and they kept acting like it was normal. Very frustrating! Only reason I’ll go back is because they gave us gift cards. I may regift them!

Only say "moderate" noise level because it was right after a Bengals game so understandable and no fault of the restaurant. Truly excellent steaks, service and ambiance. Have been there before and will be back. Most highly recommend.

It was our first time at RC celebrating our anniversary. Our server Carmen gave us the best service and made us feel so special. The hosts and greeters make you feel like royalty. We had the perfect view of the Banks on the top level. We had the best steak we’ve ever had it was still sizzling on the plate. Cannot wait to go back!

The food was excellent! The only negative is that you must be careful when they receive the steak as it is served on a plate that is sizzling and can easily burn yourself. Other than that I highly recommend going here for a nice night out.

We enjoyed it. The service was good but I have to say the server was fairly serious....not much warmth. Maybe he was having a bad day.

The food was very good and we would actually rate it higher than the Precinct which hasn't been so good the last few times we've gone there. We have some other friends who also concur.

Overall, a nice experience. Food is very good. Wish the server was a little more welcoming but....with staffing shortages these days....maybe he was tired (although we were his first diners of the day).

Steak is the best in town. The other side dishes were cold (I believe they sat waiting for the steak). Everything did taste good though.The pomegranate martini was really good!
